THE AMERICAN RESERVE REVIEWS
Don't Just Take It From Us!
- Fabulous all the way around. Best food around, far exceeding my expectation for a hotel restaurant. Incredible cocktails & good wine choices. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and late room service are all spectacular. The Ambassador is a wonderful hotel made even more special by the Reserve food and staff. We'll be back as often as possible.
- KC's best kept fantastic dining secret!!! This hidden gem is fabulous all the way around. Great food - well prepared, quality and great choices. Service is good and ambiance is lovely - feels like you are in a European boutique hotel...
- Excellent fine dining in a casual atmosphere. Not a mediocre dish on the menu! And, staying here 7 nights, we literally have tried everything! Great jazz playing all the time. Staff is wonderful. The best restaurant in downtown KCMO!
- The Reserve has great food and service, but what really makes this place stand out is its plush and cozy atmosphere. They have awesome Happy Hour specials that go until 7 pm and well-balanced lunch and dinner menus. On the weekends, they have live jazz and ballads from 8 to 11 pm. This is definitely one of the best downtown Kansas City restaurants.
